"Grateful" doesn't even begin to describe it.

[To follow my ABNA journey from the very beginning, click the ABNA label at the bottom of this post]

I'm completely overwhelmed and touched by the support I've received from my family, friends, and perfect strangers these past two days. Everyone I know went above and beyond in getting the word out, asking for votes, sharing the voting link, and just generally being awesome. I owe you all a huge THANK YOU. Seriously, you all rock.

Also, I read the other finalists' excerpts and I have to say, they are amazing. So much talent in this group. It's intimidating to be sitting next to them.

Special thanks to Cara Bertrand, one of last year's finalists, for being my mentor of sorts on Tuesday! You helped to reduce my anxiety and that's not an easy feat.

Voting is open until May 30 so there's still time to VOTE if you haven't already.

Stay tuned for more excited ramblings about my ABNA journey.


  1. What a very nice and unexpected mention! It was my complete pleasure to help.

  2. Hi Rebecca. Congrats again on being YA finalist. You alreday won, and the final stage is not about the best out of 3, but we can get more votes. If you live in Halifax, contact the newspapers and TV station. Contact national Canadian newspapers and ask them to write an article about you immediately. That will give you exposure and maybe many votes from fellow Canadians. Best wishes from Toronto.


I'd love to hear from you!
